Our Assessment: Popularized by Dirty Harry movies, the N-frame long barrel S&W revolvers had already been on the shelf in America for a few decades; after the movie, the Model 29 was revered by target shooters and law enforcement alike. The 629 is the stainless steel version and has been made in a variety of configurations since 1979 filling just about any role that could be asked of a .44 Magnum revolver. This one is from the Performance Center and has a heavy slabside barrel, integral rail, weight system, integral Weaver rail on the barrel, and of course a Performance Center action. This revolver has multiple provisions for optics and comes equipped with nice adjustable sights. This one is in great shape and may be a prime contender for an S&W collection. Whatever your reason for buying this revolver, these don’t come around every day. Please see our photos and good luck!
